The invitation has arrived…
Now what to wear?
Wether via snail mail or electronic invite. An invitation is an invitation. And I don’t know about you, but not much beats a fabulous party aka an excuse to get dressed up! Recently we had an AoS client receive a very exciting invitation to a swanky party which she felt many people would be fashion savvy. She did what any intelligent Gal would do when a Fashion 911 arrises…. Called Art of Style. We put together a few looks for her and as a AoS community we wanted to share her Swanky Party Case Study with our online followers. Shop her looks below!
This looks carries a more romantic classic energy. The dress can go ultra dressy or cocktail, with the simple switch of a shoe. STYLE TIP : hem the dress to be a midi so you can wear this with an evening flat as well. The light blue earring is subtle, yet brings a modern accessory to a timeless color palette.
Flirty and Fun! A gingham print romper is for statement makers only! Pair back with a saucy red strappy shoe and a dramatic earring to really pack a punch. This particular earring does come in multiple colors, but the black looks the most elegant, which is important to look for in the details when wearing costume jewelry to an evening event. AKA costume jewelry can look cheap and tasteless real quick. Be mindful when making your selections that the color is not making a style look too inexpensive. If you are not sure send us a pic!
Awww the tissue cut on this dress will make it move with you as you prance across the room, exactly what you are looking for with a party look. By defining the waist with a belt you are creating an edgy look, while also flattering your figure. When making the belt selection be sure to not over dominate your frame. This is not determined by, height, but actually your torso length. Long torsos go wider belt. Short torsos go thiner.
The most feminine of the outfits. The faux wrap style is ultra flattering on ALL figures and if you are not in the mood to go strapless or bra less due to the spaghetti straps you have two options. Option One being wearing a jacket, AoS suggestion, black leather. Option Two wear a sexy strap black bra and rock it Carrie Bradshaw style! Long Live Sex in the City. The flower earring brings it into summer, while there are so many ways to take this dress into fall/winter! We love a good year round piece!
